When Victor Dinaire first set foot in the club scene, he was unaware that what he just discovered would become his life's passion. Although he "was always into music as a kid," his excitement for dance music began in the early 90's, when he began throwing parties at New York City clubbing meccas Limelight, the Tunnel, and the Palladium. "It was great working for three nightclubs because I got a taste of multiple different scenes." Driven by his desire to successfully break into the dance music industry, Victor increased his intensity by working Wednesdays through Saturdays at the clubs and spending the remainder of the week 'flyering' the city and organizing events. He submerged himself in the atmosphere, always watching and listening for what pleased the crowd most. "While the crowd was dancing and having a great time, I always observed the people's reactions to the way DJs worked them." Victor especially loved to watch legendary DJ Junior Vasquez during his late nights at the Tunnel, "it was from him that I learned to work a crowd by manipulating key records live and setting dramatic sequences." Victor took on the world of dance music full-force. His interest in electronic music landed him a gig at BMG/Logic Records in 1999, where he did promotion for artists such as Giorgio Moroder, Gloria Gaynor, Danny Howells and La Bouche. In addition to excelling as a promoter, multi-talented Victor was also asked to perform on the Logic label, ultimately kicking off his own career as an artist. Victors landmark first CD compilation, Logic Trance Volume 4, delivered a truly noteworthy beginning as a performer, hitting the top 5 position for three consecutive weeks on the CMJ charts and subsequently selling out. Victor's following CD compilations, "En Trance" on Bonzai Music Italy / Megahit US and Timeless Trance classics: Midnight Sessions, followed shortly thereafter by Morning Sessions, were all also sold-out successes. This New York City native steadily set a firm foundation for his reputation in some of the biggest clubs in New York, across the States and internationally. As a regular at New York City's famed Arc NYC nightclub, Victor gained a devoted following, with the crowd eagerly anticipating his regular closing sets as much as the headliners. From New York to South Korea, Victor has performed for events such as Spundae, Gatecrasher and Godskitchen, and with esteemed artists such as Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Blank & Jones, Steve Porter, Junior Vasquez, John 00 Fleming, Sandra Collins, Nu NRG, Johan Gielen, Second Sun, Judge Jules and Matt Darey
